Miranda isn’t exactly known for being quiet, but . . . .
Miranda Lambert canceled two shows over the weekend. Her doctors say her voice is plumb tuckered out.
OK, they said it a little differently.
“Due to overextending her voice, Miranda has been place on vocal rest,” a statement on her website reads. But Miranda and her team hope the country star will rally for shows starting Thursday (July 12) in Alabama. “She’s under the care of her doctor and she hopes to return to the road next weekend,” the statement reads.
No word on what hubby Blake Shelton might think of this doctor-ordered silence.
Gov. Tim McGraw? That’s just the booze talkin’
You might remember, back in 2006, that Tim McGraw said he might run for governor or senator or something. Heck, he even landed an endorsement from President Bill Clinton.
But Tim, in an interview with the Minneapolis/St. Paul Star Tribune, dismisses that talk, for now, anyway.
“I pay attention [to politics]. I’m not sure anyone wants to hear my opinion—or that I should give my opinions.” But Tim’s not totally ruling out public office.
“Who knows? I feel like I’ve been very fortunate. If one of these days I’m in a position where I can give back and feel like I’m smart enough to help and not just doing it for the hell of doing it, then it would be something I’d consider. But certainly it would be after my kids are grown.”
Why does Brantley Gilbert’s ball cap smell like shampoo?
Strange but true: Brantley Gilbert (“Country Must Be Country Wide”) wears his ball cap so much that he accidentally wears it in the shower sometimes, he told reporters recently.
Heck, the guy says he even wears it to bed sometimes.
“It’s just like a piece of my body almost. It’s weird.”
And yet, that hat is now a part of his identity – so much so, that Brantley hopes pics of him wearing a cowboy hat at age 12 never get out.
“If that thing hits the media, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. Cause this baseball cap’s been going pretty good for me for a while.”
